Introducing the Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition. The new Moog Sub 37 Analog Synthesizer is based on the Moog Sub Phatty with a larger keyboard, increased controllability and most importantly is Paraphonic. Moog knows what you need to perform. The keyboard has being expanded out to 37 keys which instantly gave the engineers more available panel space for additional functionality.
The Sub 37 has 2 VCO’s, Noise Source, External input and Sub Oscillator. In addition the Sub 37 has a Feedback Control which is active when nothing is plugged into the external input, this can be in addition or in series to the overdrive that gives huge power and distortion capabilities. As the multi-drive is wrapped around the filter the Sub 37 can achieve unrivalled rich tones that can reach extremes with the tone turning DC, crazy!
On the Sub 37 you have independent control of the pitch of the 2 oscillators, thus making it paraphonic. The Noise source is voiced as the Sub Phatty with full controllability through the use of the multiple filter poles giving amazing body and richness. There are 16 quick preset buttons on the front panel and bank button giving instant access to 256 presets. The envelopes on the Sub 37 have moved to another level over previous models. In addition to the 4 envelope knobs there are a row of 5 buttons which are multi-featured, these buttons vary in function from multi-triggering, clock syncable LFO, looping and latch-on. The envelopes are loopable which allows the user to run pulses independently to the arpegiator. The Moog Sub 37 has full independent control of the oscillators with, for example, the possibility to set keyboard tracking for one and not the other. The pitch modulation can also be sent to one or both of the oscillators independently, both these functions bring out the power and richness of a true paraphonic synthesiser.
The Moog Sub 37 simply looks wonderful, and would be available in mid-year.
Korg debuted the RK-100S synth for the 30th anniversary of the original RK-100. Back in 1984 haircuts were questionable and music was diverse, keyboard players sat behind their hug rigs and could only dream of joining guitarists and bassists at the front of the stage to strut their stuff but, the Korg RK-100 remote keyboard broke the chains of keyboardists, setting them free to perform as they liked.
Housed in a stylish, solid wood body, the battery-powered RK-100S offers a number of additional updates from the original model. Equipped with a full palette of keyboard sounds from the built-in microKORG XL+ engine, it enables users to perform in a wide variety of music genres wherever inspiration may strike. It also functions as a USB/MIDI controller, as well as a vocoder.
There are 200 programs available in the onboard MMT sound generation system, including a broad range of oscillator algorithms such as the characteristic sawtooth and square waves found in analog synthesizers, plus formant waveforms, noise, and classic PCM/DWGS waveforms.
In addition to the 37-note slim keyboard (as featured on the Korg MS-20 Mini), a short ribbon controller on the neck and a long ribbon controller in front of the key bed are included for controlling parameters such as pitch and filter. The long ribbon runs the entire length of the key bed and can also be used to play scales over three octaves. Also included is a built-in Arpeggiator, with six arpeggios available. Notes in the Arpeggiator can be individually switched on/off, for even more rhythmic variation.
The RK-100S comes equipped with a vocoder function that lets players use their voice, via the optional headset mic, to process the sound of the oscillator.
The Korg RK-100S synth runs on six AA batteries or the optional AD adaptor and is available in a choice of three colors: red, white and black. And would be available June 2014,
The Arturia MicroBrute has a two octave mini-size keyboard and a footprint that is about half the size of the MiniBrute. Nevertheless it is still playable enough to do the job. The MicroBrute pumps out some of the most beastly sounds you’ll ever hear. It gets a lot better once you peruse the control panel, which is filled with high quality knobs, sliders and switches that are big and firm enough to redress the quality balance.
This is an analog monosynth so that means it can only play one note at a time, and that means no chords. However, there is a control to add a “fifth” note or a duplicate note one octave down. Everything on the front panel is directly connected to the circuits that make the sound, so every control is live. While it has the classic look of a Roland SH-101, MicroBrute is keen to assert its own character and style and it is a synth that begs to be pushed beyond the normal limits. Such as in the filter section there is a control called Brute Factor. This adds a kind of low frequency feedback loop into the signal which has the effect of overloading the sound with a deep, growling rumble.
On the MiniBrute the Pulse Width and Metalizer amount have independent envelope modulation parameters as well as their own depth controls in the LFO section. However, the MicroBrute does add the very neat Mod Matrix panel, which allows you to patch the envelope and LFO depth to different locations using the 3.5mm mini-jacks.
Another fabulous feature is the flexible sequencer section. It is very basic but that also makes it easy to use. Crank the dial to select one of the eight memory slots, switch into Record mode, and then tap out the notes your sequence on the keyboard, using the Rest button to insert steps without a note. Flick it into Play mode, hold down a key and your sequence will be played back at whatever tempo you have selected. You can get more from the sequencer, such as triggering the sequence with different keys and jumping up and down the octaves.
The Arturia MicroBrute has many connectivity options. 100% analog signal path. A fine-sounding and flexible synth in a small, but highly useable package. The Arturia MicroBrute is the perfect introduction for anyone who has never tweaked a real hardware synth.
